COPYTAKERS: Is there anything more lazy than knocking out a covers album? It turns out, yes, there is: taking a solo covers album you've already done, doing the minimum of re-jigging, and then re-releasing it as the new album from your band. Iva Davies, not a man to be afraid of being called a bit lax, has proudly taken his Berlin Tapes and turned it into the new Icehouse album, Heroes. The hook he's using is Australian network Seven's use of his Bowie cover for its Olympic coverage, and he's added a new version of that to the listings, but otherwise, it seems pretty much as it was:

Heroes (The Berlin remix) (David Bowie)
Loving The Alien (David Bowie)
Sister Europe (Psychedelic Furs)
Heaven (Talking Heads)
Complicated Game (XTC)
Berlin (Lou Reed)
All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
All Tomorrow's Parties (Velvet Underground)
Let There Be Love (Simple Minds)
Really Good Time (Bryan Ferry)
Love Like Blood (Killing Joke)
Heroes (The Athens remix) (David Bowie)
